In the mad rush to take the right classes, get the right grades and apply to the right universities, it can be easy to let high school fly by. At CHCA, we think it’s important to get good grades and choose a great college, but we also think high school students should engage life to the fullest.
And clearly our students do – 75% of our students partake in fine arts activities, 75% participate on athletic teams, and an untold number are involved with Student Organized Service outreach groups or join academic clubs. Actually, it’s not uncommon for our students to do it all – sometimes the football team’s wide receiver also plays Franz in The Sound of Music and helps deliver Thanksgiving baskets to the Freestore Foodbank.
With a rigorous college prep curriculum and teachers who have a passion for their subjects, our students get the kind of instruction that prepares them not only to do well on the SAT and get into college, but also to be lifelong learners. These four years are a time to learn as much as you can about the world while preparing to be part of that world, which is why service work is required, why Intersession is a staple for every student, and why participation in a wide range of activities is encouraged. When our well-rounded students graduate, they scatter like seeds to all corners of the nation and even the world. Wherever they end up, we want these young adults to be able to think beyond themselves and to impact their communities for God’s kingdom.
And our faculty leads students on this journey. Some of our teachers have left jobs in industry to share their love of science; some are Ph.D.s in their field of study; but all have a heart for helping teenagers discover their potential. Using a variety of approaches in class, each has a special way of showing their students that God works in all things – from math to history to fine arts. Because of our Christ-centered classrooms, weekly chapel and four years of Christian Studies education, students leave CHCA with a solid educational and spiritual foundation that enables them to learn, lead and serve with a uniquely Christian worldview.
At CHCA, we educate the whole person – mind, body and spirit – to make the high school experience an enriching, inspiring and memorable part of the journey toward adulthood.
